It’s official! Finished my new website! So excited to have it done, I think the platform supports my work much better than what I had been using. Please check it out to see new work too!
Dyeing some fabric for costumes in the making! Love this color. Stay posted for more sneak peaks!
I’ve been working on a new website for a while now, getting close to releasing it and am just so excited that I wanted to share a sneak peak! Also working on putting up new work from the Creation Museum, lots of exciting things in the works!
Come check out my work at the ArtWork6 show, with selections from staff and faculty of the Art Institute of Chicago and SAIC. I’m excited to be showing new work!
Excited to be weaving in my studio! The loom is stretched across an old bed frame, assembled Navajo-style with rope for tension. I’m weaving several pieces for costumes to be used in a video installation. And yes, this means more mummies are on their way..

Tying the “leashes” to lift the counter-weft.
I always seem to make out like a kid in a candy shop when visiting the Textile Discount Outlet..
Playing with color and texture.
I like to try to continue making illustrations on the side, no matter what I am working on. I find it keeps the creative juices flowing and reminds me how much I love color and line and is always a good exercise in composition.
Closer view of illustration in progress.
It’s been great to see my photographs, illustrations and collected images together on the wall in the studio. I’ve realized when I get back I need a studio space to gather my influences and old/current work together into one place. I can really begin to draw connections and understand some things that I’m talking about in my work. Also, I’ve realized there is so much to create! If someone dropped a grant in my hands today I would free myself to create everyday.

Finally getting to rescanning/editing/printing old work.
Scanning/editing negatives from Cornerstone. I haven’t posted any of these on my website, they are long since overdue for editing..
